Children’s event to bring story books to life

Stuart – Vendors are coming out in force to participate in next month’s Storybook Forest, bringing with them a host of beloved children’s fairytale characters.

The third annual event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 25 at Stuart’s Flagler Park, is an exhibit of booths designed to give children an interactive experience with favorite childhood stories. Some of the stories featured include A is for Aloha, All About Me, the Princess and the Frog, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Storybook Forest is being done in celebration of Children's Week and will feature interactive exhibits from about 20 local organizations and businesses.

Activities include jewelry and mask making, a Home Depot Kid Club Workshop, acorn tossing and bubble making.

“This is a really fun event for the entire community, especially for the younger children,” said Loretta Toth, executive assistant for Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee Counties and event committee chair. “For us, and other providers of children’s services, it’s an opportunity to get in front of young families who might need some of the resources we offer.” 

Other organizations represented on the committee include Devereux CBC, Camelot Community Care and Guardian ad Litem.

Devereux Community Based Care and its foster-parent recruitment and licensing providers will have booths at the event for anyone interested in learning more about becoming foster parents.

Pete the Cat will also make appearances throughout the day.

About 500 people attended the event last year.
